The production of wastewater caused by human activities exposes urban areas of Cote d'Ivoire to major health risks linked to the presence of any pathogens. This study aims to detect target pathogens in order to evaluate potential risk for local population and the influence of external factors. Samples of wastewater were collected in sterile bottles in 14 stations during 11 months. So, 833 wastewater samples were analyzed. Temperature and pH were measured in situ. Microbiology analysis were performed for the counting and the identification of Escherichia coli, Vibrio sp and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The bacteria (Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Vibrio sp) were isolated. The results revealed that pH and temperature were not comply with current standards but favorable to the development of microorganisms. The presence or absence of Escherichia coli, Vibrio sp, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa was better correlated by the temperature of the collected wastewater. The wastewater in Abidjan is contaminated by fecal indicator bacteria pollution but also by some pathogens due to the outside temperature action. Their treatment before been rejected or eliminated should be useful for population health or public health.
